What we do
We want to re-ignite a European spirit of collaboration, encourage an exchange of ideas, and foster the values of informed, representative, and enlightened collaboration. To make this happen we want to empower library staff to act as facilitators rather than leaders and give the keys of the library back to the people.
To achieve this, we:
Create innovative projects with libraries and link them to relevant partners and funders
Develop networks of libraries that support civic participation and citizen engagement
Advocate for the importance of public libraries to EU decision makers
Connect libraries with partners to contribute to civil society initiatives
Put public libraries on the agenda by showing how they are providing spaces that can help to solve crucial issues
Help civil society initiatives to deliver on their public affairs agenda.
